Why take the bus or rids your bike to school when you can zip-line across the jungle to your classes.

Ziplining isn`t that bad. I did it in Mexico. Granted,there were more safety regulations and I`m sure the equipment was more stable because the company didn`t want liability issues, but it`s really not that scary.

Holy $hit. O_O

At least none of them learn to be scared of heights. :D

Btw, here`s no way in hell I`d be caught doing that.

Wow, I used to dream about something like that while I had to walk home from school everyday. Actually though, my dream was for more of a tram/ski lift to carry me, but close enough.

That seems like a load of fun actually...I think you`d get bored after doing this every day for a year though.

"They have an awesome life"

What is so awesome about living in a remote village in the jungle where your only way out is either a 2 hour hike or a dodgy zip line?

> i call bull. how do you get back? unless the happens to be an other huge hill to walk up next to the bottom of that zip line

Well, that`s precisely what the video DID say... two lines, angled oppositely, one for each direction... watching the video too confusing for you?

Coolest way?? maybe for stunt men or high adrenalin addicts.Would you let your 6 year old use this every day? I thought so.
I admit I would like to try it for fun.

No fatal accidents or serious injuries. Let`s face it, if you fall you`re dead, there won`t be any crawling away with just a serious injury.

This is how I think the future of Moon Travel for the masses will be... you wait till the moon is under Australia then slide down a giant rope to it, then when it goes back above America you slide down the same rope to get back.

Colombian guy won`t carry more than 80 lbs with him on the line. I guess that means no southern state american will ever know what it`s like to ride that thing. ahahahahah

Want to know what is even scarier than this?
LIVING IN COLOMBIA.

And as far as how they get back - there must be two lines.

Let`s not all be swindled by Ripley`s. They obviously played up the danger with clever camera angles and fast-motion and such. It doesn`t look that dangerous

God forbid they, y`know, move closer to civilization or something. .___.

I wasn`t truly terrified until the small child popped out of the burlap bag.

In a bag, held by your sister, sliding across a zip-line, every day, twice a day.

Kudos to you, children.
I`d pee myself. ._.
